Popular modules "how to" guide
Two modules commonly looked for by the prior learning route are the CIT module (CMOD6001 Creativity Innovation and Teamwork) and work placement modules (there are a few of these, check your programme outline at http://courses.cit.ie/index.cfm for the correct module code).
All of these modules are available by the normal conventional route, but if on checking the learning outcomes you feel your background is suitable then the prior learning approach might be an option for you.
The following will take you through the process of submitting a case for both of these modules. It explains the structure of the learning portfolio and suggests how to build a suitable case against the learning outcomes.
